The Carpenter Foundation

The Carpenter Foundation

Carpenter Category I funds may be used by applicants to participate in new scholarship, to pursue terminal degrees, to update or extend academic skills, or for extended study at a college, university, or accredited academic institution. A Carpenter I grant was awarded for 2015-16 to cover expenses related to travel and registration to participate in the 5-training Organizational Relationship Systems at Work series sponsored by CRR Global. The trainings have direct applicability to the multiple roles I hold in higher education, including as teacher, department chair, and leader of various campus committees and organizations. Training topics include ineffective and toxic communication, conflict avoidance and non-resolution, lack of creativity and productivity, have direct applicability to my work as a dissertation chair.
